Ecovis Clark Jacobs Insurance Pty Ltd is a joint venture owned by Ecovis Clark Jacobs and MBS Insurance.

As a firm, Ecovis Clark Jacobs made the decision that, in order to provide holistic advice to our clients, we needed the capability to advise around insurance. 

We strongly believe that, in order to provide holistic advice to our clients, we need the capability to advise on insurance. It is important to us that this advice is given under our stewardship and via a company we are actively involved with, to ensure the quality of advice and service our clients receive matches the quality of advice and service already received from Ecovis Clark Jacobs; both at the time their insurance is written, as well as in the event of a claim.

We didn’t have the experience in-house to offer this to our clients, so we chose to partner with a firm that already excels in this area.  The vision and values of Ecovis Clark Jacobs and MBS Insurance are closely aligned, and MBS’s proven reputation and depth of experience in the insurance industry will ensure clients receive the highest standard of advice.   

Ecovis Clark Jacobs Insurance  Pty Limited ABN 58 623 472 800 is an Authorised Representative of Bombora Advice Pty Ltd ABN 40 156 250 565 Level 2, 406 Collins Street, Melbourne VIC  3000  AFSL 439065.
